Salt museum’s opening will not be delayed

December 12, 2006


— Work on a plan to rescue visitors in the event of an elevator malfunction will not delay the opening of the Kansas Underground Salt Museum, museum officials said Monday.

Some training tours that involved the public have been canceled until the emergency plan is fully tested and implemented, which should take three to four weeks, the museum said in a news release.

However, the installation of rescue equipment has always been in the construction timetable and will not delay the expected June 2007 opening, the museum said.

Museum officials also stressed that no problems have been reported with the elevator that carries visitors 650 feet down to the museum's mine floor, and the rescue plan and equipment is purely precautionary.
